  • Billed as an action RPG mixing traditional mechanics with a healthy dose of humor in concept Zenith sounds pretty solid. In execution, though, I quickly found it pretty disappointing. Weirdly, with as many games as I’ve played featuring crude language and humor that I’ve enjoyed there’s a certain spark in Zenith that’s missing for me so it just feels tacked on and even out of place. I can’t put a finger on it but rather than laughing along with the jokes and dialogue I’d find myself sort of shaking my head aghast at it. That said, if you check it out and find it to your liking there may not be an issue there. Where it will likely fall down a bit universally though is that in terms of gameplay it’s a bit of a mess. Taking on the likes of Diablo may be a lot to ask but even against many indie contemporaries in this space the combat is a letdown, feeling stiff, clunky, and not terribly rewarding. It has glimmers of promise in it but given its competition on the platform it’s tough to recommend.
